As I put in a previous post, I have a new book coming out soon. West Running Wild.
This is the first book I ever completed and I’m really excited about its release, with one exception. I hate the cover!
Despite my instructions and even providing samples of the type of cover I want, the designers still didn’t produce one I like.
I thought I might grow to like it, and spent all weekend convincing myself it was alright but in the end, I had to admit, I just can’t keep it.
What I hate, is the background. I think it makes the book childish and if I’m honest, I imagine a telly tubby running over the hill at any moment.See what I mean?
So where did this leave me?
Even tough the cover already had the maximum three revisions, I contacted the designer and explained how I felt. My suggestion to remove the background has been forwarded and now I’m waiting.
Will it look better without tubby land?
I don’t know.
I hope so but well will see. If I still don’t like I’m unsure what I’ll do. Probably pay for another. I suppose I should be grateful I have the option to pick and chose. Traditionally published authors don’t have that liberty. I honestly don’t know how they cope if they don’t like what they are given.
Here’s hoping I do like mine in the end.
Keep your fingers crossed for me.
